Re: Haze

Other than waiting until light changes (and I know we both travel alot and probably don't very often have that luxury) the other thing that can help is a UV filter. Filters are a mixed bag. I generally dislike them and the only one I have ever used regularly is a polarizer (and very ocassionally, a ...

LOL. You have me beat! :-). We are trying to catch you, but I don't know if there is enough time left.

Enjoy your travels this fall and make lots of photos!

Re: Peacham Peak?

Carol and I note in our book that Peacham often turns and "peaks" (whatever that means to you :) ) later than other areas. Indeed, although it is known to be the first place to turn, the entire Northeast Kingdom often has pockets of late, very nice color. I have photographed there a few times over t...

Re: Advice to first-time VT visitor - 1 week itinerary?

Utah: Thanks for the perspective. I tend to think of seeing Vermont through my own lenses (pun intended). Because I am a photographer, I am much less interested in some of the other cultural things Vermont has to offer. I have spent some time (though precious little) in Woodstock and will say that t...

Re: Peak reports

Viag: thanks for the reply. I like your definitions :) . I have been shooting since 1975, when I was living and attending college in Vermont. If you are on Facebook, and have seen the Page, "Vermont by a Vermonter," that is John Knox, my college math professor and original inspiration and teacher of...

Re: Advice to first-time VT visitor - 1 week itinerary?

Agree 100% with mmvt! Unless you like crowds and touristy things (shopping, etc.) avoid both Stowe and Woodstock. If you are looking for a taste of the real "Vermont" and some quiet countryside, opt for further away. For example Waitsfield is only 20 mins south on Route 100 from Stowe and is a much ...

Re: Red leaves

Part of the reason for the "lack" of reds is timing. Another part is the fact that unfortunately, Vermont Maple trees have been accosted with a "rust" disease over a few of the past years, causing them to turn brown and fall early. In my experience the maples tend to turn earlier than other species ...

Re: Peak reports

Hello Viajero465: First of all, welcome to our forum!! Reading your post, I know you are already somewhat familiar with Vermont. I did not see in the post where you were only going to visit in 2020? Are you a photographer? I found this forum almost 15 years ago, when planning a photography trip to V...

Re: Can we get some Vermont photography going again?

EDIT: LOL. It appears I should read my own sign-off :shock: . Mr. R appears to have been a spammer and I believe he was politely (or perhaps not :D ) invited to leave. Hi Mr R: First, welcome to our forums! I hope that in spite of the echos in the hallway :D , you will stick around for the fall, wh...

Re: End of a Fall Foliage Vacation for a lifetime

Looking forward to your photos. Thanks for the kind words about the book. Through 2 editions now, it has been a labor of love (certainly won't get us on the "Best Sellers" list :-( ). Finding good scenics can be a lot of work and we have been happy to share some of our knowledge. Hope you come back ...

MM: Did you keep gps coordinates, or can you find your way back to the spot where you were "lost"? Looks like a great area to "find" again :)
